Prairie Women’s Sewing Circle

26 Jul

This is a bonus project that you will attach yo-yos to. So cute!

Saturday morning was so much fun–we now have twenty-nine members of the Prairie Women’s Sewing Circle!  I can’t wait to see the first “Show & Tells” next month and see how many of the Prairie Women use their “Make Do” piece of fabric.  If you missed the meeting, your pattern for the first quilt is behind the front counter with your name on it and I hope we see you on August 21 at 11am.  Holler if you have any questions.    ~~Pam

"Leap of Faith" is made with 2 pieces of fabric.

Pam demonstrates the Flying Geese x 4 method

Eager "Prairie Women"! Welcome!

New Beginning Quiltmaking Graduates!

26 Jul

We just finished the July Beginning Quiltmaking Class and so many of the students decided to make their quilt samplers much larger!  Felicia decided to maker hers into a queen sized quilt!  (I think the “Quilt Bug” bit them…don’t you?)

Here are some of their projects.  We had a great time!!

Felicia's queen sized quilt top! Congratulations!

 

Lisa, has never sewn before...at all! Great job!

Nancy, (who's in there somewhere) did a great job in making her's a 9 block sampler!

Melinda made her project just a bit bigger by adding two more blocks.

Another "Star" project!!

Melinda even had time this week to make a new purse!

July Strip Club!

26 Jul

We had a terrific turn out at Saturday’s Strip Club meeting!  Wonderful show and tells…here are some pics!

We had several new quilters from my most recent Beginning Quiltmaking Class show up and and they were surely inspired!  I’ll show you some of their projects in the next blog.  They sure were a fun group!

We even had our first visit from Gianna, Mark and Linda Towle’s grand daughter (Gianna’s Mommy came too!)  Here is our youngest “stripper”!  I’m sure her Gramma and Grampa will make a quilter out of her!

Gianna, our youngest Quilt Stripper!

and THIS is the back!!! Isn't it fabulous???

Here is the front of the quilt....Here is another quilt front....

Another great example of a pieced back! Love it!

More Show and Tells from some of our customers who are getting caught up on their Unfinished Projects!!!

Wonderful job and the backs are as beautiful as the front of the quilts! 

Max selected the fabrics and made the current month’s strip club project.  We all think he did a terrific job!  Kudos, Max!

Pattern "Perfect Ten" Strip Club Project, sewn by Max Brewer.

Our Strip Club meets on the next to the last Saturday of each month at 9am.  It’s open to any one and the projects are suitable for beginners on up.  It’s a great way to make a quilt a month and have a year’s worth of gifts ready by the Holidays.  Everyone is welcome so plan to come to the next meeting on August 21 at 9 am.  It’s a “mystery quilt” in a way.  The fabrics for the August project are pink, blue and purple batiks!  Deadline for reserving August’s kit is August 2.
